Workamping Basics Introduction:
This is a direct quote from my book and I’m really not sure if it’s finished yet. I was planning on using it as in introduction to the first part of the book which focuses directly on understanding Workamping, the mechanics, and answering common questions.
If you haven’t heard by now, Workamping is the adventurous life of work and RV travel! It has grown in popularity over the past decade and stories of its alternative lifestyle have made news headlines from the Seattle Times to the Huffington Post and even a segment on NBC’s Today Show!
Today there seem to be well over 1 million people RVing full-time, or so it’s been said. The media and news reports are saying people are turning to alternative ways of living and RVing is at the top of the list. More and more people are RVing in the US than ever before and while most people hear the word Workamp and immediately think of retirees, it’s not always the case. People who Workamp come from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities and age demographics and have taken kindly to the RVing lifestyle for the vast benefits it affords.
Many of these people are actually Workampers, meaning they live in an RV and work in one form or another. Creators of the popular term, Workamper News, define a Workamper as “adventuresome individuals, couples, and families who have chosen a wonderful lifestyle that combines ANY kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping.”
I may elaborate a little more, but I didn’t want the intros to be too long. Like not much longer than a page, as the chapters would hold most of the content.
